Rikki's Refuge saves the lives of any animal with conviction, passion and humor. A wonderful organization of caring people! The 'no kill' policy saves countless animal lives.

The hundreds (maybe thousands) of animal live saved

My family visited Rikki's a few weeks ago. We were greatly impressed! The volunteers were the heart of the refuge. Their kindness, generosity and love for their animal family members was evident in their actions. No matter how hot, tired or stressed they were, each volunteer greeted us with waves or a smile. Even the dogs and cats greeted us! Each of the animals have a story and a history. They are each survivors. A tentative, hard-earned, new-found trust shone from their eyes. They have a home. They have food. They have LOVE. This is what we took away with us after our visit. We found the Spirit of Rikki's!

The Great!

Without Rikki's we would have never had our dogs, Rachel, Schnappsy and Miss Daisy. All were old when we adopted them, and Rachel is going strong after 9 years with us. She loves life. Miss Daisy has been with us for a year. We would encourage everyone to adopt an older animal. There is no greater love.

My wife and I are part of Big Brothers Big Sisters and have taken our Little Brothers to Rikki's. While a bit stand-offish with some animals, it has been a way to help overcome their fear of animals. Rikki's is a wonderful refuge that gives animals an extended, safe life. It's a great place (that, of course, needs more funding)!! Bobby & Sally Anderson
